Before EWI she had one interaction at the border which WAS NOT a deportation.
Already approved I-130 and I-601A.
We are preparing IV DS-260 form. The embassy where she will be interviewed has a record of
misinterpreting these findings as they do not share a border with USA and "voluntary return" is not something they normally see. I do not want her to be put on "Administrative Process" or denied her visa because they have, in other cases, understood these findings as deportations. Incident was detailed on 601A application and again on DS-260. I wonder if we should provide them with the FOIAs when submitting DS-260 supporting documents or during the interview to minimize any possible error.
Your attorney should prepare a legal memo to accompany you to the interview. These issues should have been explained on prior forms as well.
The lawyer could write a memo indeed. Also, no need to provide entire record obtained via FOIA. Only evidence relevant to the issue at hand should be provided.
